Qatar World Cup: a children's treasury of Twitter snark
A look at the Twitter reaction to Qatar beating out the United States, among others, for the 2022 World Cup.
@TheGoche: Bid cities for Qatar: Doha, N. Doha, S. Doha, E. Doha, W. Doha, Central Doha, S Central Doha, NNW Doha, The Surface of the Sun
@MikeGarafolo: By the time the World Cup returns to the US they'll be playing games in the New New Meadowlands Stadium.
@SoccerInsider: #Qatar has 12 years to build stadiums ... and to build a respectable team
@CaptainAnnoying: If Qatar's social mores induce Brazilian chicks to show up modestly dressed at WC2022, I am so done with soccer.
@celebrityhottub: Wait, is FIFA picking World Cup sites or settings for Call of Duty missions?
@FisolaNYDN: Plenty of good seats still available for USA-Israel first round match at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
@edsbs: "I'm sure this was all done on the up-and-up and that Qatar really did have the best bid package." --Auburn fan.
@stefanfatsis: Spain/Portugal wants to know if it can have its bribes back.
@sportsguy33: Qatar needs to thank its special consultant for the 2022 WC bid: Cam Newton's father.
@sportsguy33: Any time you can hold a World Cup in a hot Middle East country that's smaller than Connecticut + has no soccer tradition, you have to do it.
@tragicarpetride: At least in Australia they can drown their sorrows in beer at this hour #wc2022 #wehavebeerinthefridgeatwork
@tragicarpetride: Qatar 2022: come for the heat, stay for the restricitive alcohol policies #notinamillionyears
@bommadog: Shakira will be singing Qatar's World Cup song again. The name of the song will be "HOTTA, HOTTA" instead of "WAKKA WAKKA"
@CraigMac: @SoccerInsider Thoughts on Rhode Island's bid for the 2026 World Cup? The Vatican? Maybe even Monaco?
